"Let's start with ... his house!"

SCOTUS ruled that local governments can use eminent domain to take away a person's property, even to give over to ANOTHER private concern to build over. The local government need only look at a potential for greater revenue from the new property than they had for the old.

Needless to say, this is upsetting.

One man has proposed that we start with Justice Souter's house:
On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Mr. Souter's home.
It does indeed get better. Go have a look.
